  1. Expected this from Wallace? How is that? Her having only one year left, finishing her career at AU, and being a leader was not solid enough to stay? What could be going on with the Coach and his veteran player that she feels she can't be a part of this team any more? I just dont see the reasons being what happened in the past. Unless some of the problems are still WITH the team. Is that possible?
  2. So much for a pitcher being rusty, huh? It is strange a pitcher very rarely used, turns in the best performance of the tournament. Was it a case of a flat Auburn or a pitcher who is just part of a better pitching staff than us? Seems, its a little of both...
  3. I really wish we could just focus on tonight first...I have a one track mind, heart, and emotion...Hard to think of the next series..lol
  4. when was the last time Zirzow pitched? I think rust could be an issue if it has been a while...
  5. That last strike or the last out is one of the toughest outs for a pitcher. You even see it in the Majors too. And for someone to wonder about CBT not going to the mound amazes me. He is one of the best pitching coaches in the country. Some coaches have different philosophies about going out to the mound. It was probably a case where he had a veteran pitcher on in the ninth, who worked his tail off to keep us in the game. It was 2 outs, one runner on first. CL was still his best chance. Its was his best remaining pitcher against one of the better hitters. He knew what he had to do...and didnt need his coach to come out for appearances only. It just didnt work out...
  6. I have seen this too many times during the year. It is SUCH a rally killer. I think there has been some talk about why not bunt more to get more in scoring positon. We seem to get multiple hits in an inning sandwiched around a DP...

  8. totally understand. I thought from some comments here, that it had been told by coach or family...
  9. I still dont recall what her medical issue was? anyone know for sure?
  10. who looks to be in the rotation next year? Mize, and Daniel, and then who? Is Sprinkle going to make it as a SP?
  11. As Mikey said..it is the rule (written or not), that the CF controls anything in the gaps, unless they are called off. Draper WAS going to catch it. (you must have been watching it on a phone..lol). Thanks OlderWHiskey for your insight. I agree on most of it. But just to add my 2 cents worth. As Meyers said, he thought they underachieved. But I believe most very good coaches think that, when they are used to high success. And to him, now, not getting to WS is not what he expects from his teams. 1. He didnt get production out of the bottom of his lineup he kept trying to find success with. Only Rivera finally came in and seemed to add some punch and spark. But you can't have hitters .250 and below hitting 7-9. 2. As Meyers said, he thought about going small ball to generate runners and offense, but he said he lacked speed and quickness, which is true, so against very good teams, we struggled to score more than 2-3 runs...not enough. 3. We didnt have power pitchers that could shut down the good teams. I think our pitchers felt they had to produce shutouts, when we kept getting into late innings with no runs or 1-2. a lot of pressure there. I'm proud of them...and in no way as someone on here mistakenly spoke out...did Meyers fail, or this team falter at the end. We simply were good enough to get to the Supers...but no farther. Looking forward to another fun season next year...
  12. When your lead off hitter strikes out twice, along with 12 other ks then you don't have a chance to make things happen. 28 batters and when we had someone on, we struck out instead of put the ball in play. We struggle against the real good pitchers this year, without making contact it seems. But we have seen this at times this year.
  13. In this day and time, it is almost impossible for a signee to not qualify. His situation must have been pretty bad, or he didnt get consistent help to overcome his academic problems...sorry for him...
  14. That ain't going to happen. This team doesnt have the firepower or consistent gap hitters past say #5. It's going to be low scoring games that we will have to win. Pitching will be the key if we win.
  15. i have watched all of the names mentioned...and if it was not for playing behind Bo, and playing in the wishbone, Fullwood would have had close or better numbers than Bo. look at the numbers. He had so so fewer carries than Bo, but his avg was unbelievable. Give him as many carries as Bo and he may surpass his totals. The guy could cut or let it loose. He would have been great in the I formation. Now we know he didnt have the power or the 100 yd speed of Bo. But he was elusive, and pretty powerful and could get past the LOS faster than anyone I saw live at AU... For pure heart in a smaller body..give me Tre or Cadillac...
